How does Flow & Rough Draft work?


Decreased prefrontal cortex activity and self-consciousness, along with beta and theta waves are associated with flow. Flow is like being lost in the moment, forgetting time. Rough Draft encourages flow by forgetting editing.


The parietal lobe is active during critical thinking. This can be great for finding typos and refining, but not helpful when trying to write or form your ideas. Rough Draft actively discourages looking back at what you wrote.

(Admittedly we are not brain scientists, but we have developed Rough Draft and tested its effects using Emotiv's EEG brain scanners)
